Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely - now and for ever

The Aristotle Metadata Registry is open-source through and through. We designed Aristotle to be an open-source product, we use a open-source frameworks like Django, Bootstrap and Haystack, and the basis of our product is the open ISO/IEC 11179 metadata standard.

Aristotle Cloud is designed as an option for organisations who are as committed to open-source as we are but don't have the in-house capacity to manage or deploy a solution themselves. What Aristotle-Cloud provides is an opportunity for clients to outsource management of their metadata registry to our turn-key, enterpise-grade, cloud-based servers so they can get on with the business of data management. Users will have as much control over their registry as if they installed it themselves, without the overhead of infrastructure and software management.

Our primary cloud cluster is hosted within the United States, however our infrastructure supports a managed installation in a variety of locations around the world, including various countries across Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific.

To access your choice of location can require additional setup and may incur additional costs for setup and ongoing maintainance.

Yes, we think so! All of our cloud services are hosted on leading secure cloud infrastructure, which already meets the requirements of a number of government cloud panels.

But to be sure we can liase with you to check what is appropriate in your jursdiction.

Yes — as long as you have a the domain registered and are allowed to use it, we can point your registry to any domain you need. If you are looking to host on a .gov domain (or,, etc...) you'll need to register that through your government domain provider.

For all other publically accessible domains (.com,, etc...) we can help manage domain registration on your behalf.

Once you have a domain, we can setup DNS records to point your cloud in the right direction.

Absolutely, your Aristotle Metadata Registry can be themed to match your corporate style, and we can work with you to make sure your registry looks just that - yours!

Depending on complexity of the design there may be additional setup costs to ensure your site can be smoothly updated as future releases of the platform become available.

Only active users or teams count against your limits so you can always deactivate users who no longer use the system, or archive teams to increase capacity.

If you exceed the number of included seat licences additional seats can be added and invoiced monthly for an additional monthly fee.

No — there aren't any extra costs associated with setting up your cloud metadata registry. Once you choose your configuration and we setup all the financials, setting up a new registry is a snap.

However, if you have large volumes of metadata to migrate or have special design requirements, we can discuss consulting options with you when you sign up.

Because we are open-source, we are always accepting bugs and feature requests, but we prioritise based on community interest, and time retraints. If you have programming experience, you are more than welcome to join our community and help us build a better product for everyone to use.

If you have a special requirement and aren't in a position to develop it yourself, we take requests and complete them as time permits. But if you want to sponsor a new feature or extension our consulting page has all the details for contacting us to implement it at an accelerated pace.
